Thanksgiving Chron Challenge



  • Well, I'll probably start a Christmas Chron challenge as well, but the more the merrier...

    Anyway, since it's only three weeks to Thanksgiving, I'd expect any responses to be fairly short, but we'll see.

    Challenge:

    • Write a chron that is at least 300 words long (not that I'll be counting) briefly describing a day in the life of one of your characters from the TSs or a game NPC.
    • The character in question must mention thanksgiving (the act or the holiday, your choice).
    • A turkey should probably be mentioned or appear in some capacity.
    • Retsy must die (preferably more than once).


  • I'm already ruling myself out as a contender because it's National Novel Writing Month and I kind of accidentally signed on this year. :mellow:

    WHAT?! >:(



  • You kind of had that coming after your last GM story.

    Oh, so we can see the rest of your novel this month?



  • No, but with any luck you'll see three new chapters. The goal of NaNoWriMo is to write 50K words and I had 38K at the start of the month, so I committed to bringing the total up to 50K.



  • Yay for more Sail! ^_ __^

    Sely is so lazy. He runs a character killing service , and he's challenging other people to kill my character, presumably to get revenge on me for my Groundhog Day story.



  • You should start your own service providing security for characters! Retsy is going to need it.

    What? Don't you think the chron characters need something to be thankful for :p ?

    My service only applies to TS characters (though I'd be happy in most cases to apply it to chrons as well) and only at the request of the person owning the character. Actually, I think I've only killed 2 or three characters anyway.

    I don't think it's revenge so much as your actions suggested a reasonable requirement for the chron challenge :p .



  • I'm hoping the stony silence on this topic means that everyone is too busy working on their chrons to post here...



  • You know us too well.



  • Well, I went ahead and submitted an entry. It's supposed to be somewhat funny, although it probably misses the mark in quite a few areas.



  • Since we can't have you win by default, here's an entry that's at least 50% BMW. She asked me to post because she's been kidnapped by in-laws and is being tortured by boring family stories.



  • Do we need to send out a rescue mission?



  • I survived Thanksgiving, but my hat didn't ;_;

    ( & by "at least 50% BMW" he means it was my idea to use Rasmus & Co characters, and I wrote the boring bits that seem to drag on. Tyry totally rescued the story : __D)

  • Actually, I'm impressed by the number of replies to this challenge. There were more than I expected, although I admit to being disappointed that Retsy seemed to survive in a lot of them ;) .

    I suppose that I'll have to go ahead and get the Christmas chron challenge up in a couple of days or so, depending on how long it takes me to come up with some more ideas for it.
